Yet another binge purchase hard on the heels of a shitty painful trip to cleo-land. Honestly wtf.
Where you see a catastrophic fugly fit, I feel nothing but relief from the crappiest (american) bras on earth.
Took out the tiny wires & replaced with #40 plunges. Hand basted down the weirdly pointy 'long nipple' sack at the center of the cup. Mild reduction in the band. Success.
It worked for exactly 3 weeks then somehow my gd sonafa shitass ginomous psycho ETERNALLY WIDE 1.5" deep root just grew wider by a few more inches to fuck this up for me too. Why? Were ...we NOT already having enough orange-in-a-glass fun, between needing ultra short lower cup height, maximum immediate depth issues & ominously high & not flat but definitely not concave upper root?
Where are the freaking madhouse wide cups with bare minimum at least an inch immediate direct outward depth and all the FOT allowance. The rest can be a 5" wide flat sheet for all I care, just... I need to know. So I can throw everything away, and go home to my people where they build things for this crazy set of nonfat sacks. Read more 100 more words
This review is for the Gorsenia Casablanca, in 70G EU (32F UK), color Cream. My ABTF size is 32G/GG or 34 FF/G UK. I chose this based on measurements, not label size; Brastop suggests to size down a size since it runs deep and I agree.
Band: * Seems TTS. Has 3 hooks by 3 columns.
Wires: * Very comfortable; very narrow at 5.25 inches wide in the 70G.
Cups: * 3 part full cup. The bottom has one vertical seam. The top is lace.
Straps: * The straps are fully adjustable.
Fabric: * The Cream color is very pale, almost white.
Hardware: * The hardware is matching cream. There's a crystal at the gore.
About me: very close set (breasts ...touch), very narrow roots, very projected at the wire, full on bottom, short roots, soft tissue, significant rib flares, narrow shoulders.
* The band length was good for me, perhaps a little snug. I'm a 32 or 34 due to rib flares. * The wires are VERY narrow at this size, which I love. Comparable to my Ewa. * The gore tacked nicely. It was as narrow as it could be at .75 inches * The cups gave a great shape and great lift. Unfortunately I need more projection at the wire. Also, as a full cup they came up too tall for my liking and bit into my TOS. * The straps are long enough. * The sides are a comfortable height for me.
OVERALL IMPRESSION * This is a really great bra but had enough mismatches for me that it's not a keeper. Read more 137 more words
Pretty basic white bra. I ordered this in 75L and 75M because of alisa 's review of another Gorsenia in 75M which was so massive. This one is pretty similar https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_razz.gif" alt=":P" />
I will review this size because this one "fit" better than the 75M did.
It has slightly stretchy lace in the top part of the cup, the bottom part is a softer mesh, it's okay. not scratchy mesh. The band has a similar fabric. Pretty basic, silky straps. Nothing stands out good or bad in terms of material or looks of this bra.
The fit. It's weird. It is so..big? Like, ...it's so tall everywhere. The wires are pretty weak, the gore floats and wants to flip over itself. Not exactly narrow wires or anything however they don't bother me, at least they have a decent U shape compared to UK brands shape and width. So for me that would not be a dealbreaker.
The main problem, a part from the gore issue, is that the cups don't have anywhere near enough immediate and overall projection for me. It's not super shallow but it's certainly made for someone who has more upper fullness than me, on them the apex would hit better but it's just a big shape mismatch for me. Plenty of wrinkles in bottom of cup.
I don't think I'll be trying any other Gorsenia bras sadly. Read more 127 more words
Another bra bought pre-finding out my cup size went up to size me out of even more brands :'). I learned that Gorsenia's unpadded cups run one size large though, so I think it's ok...?
Firstly, the shape on this bra. Wow! I know some people shit on globe shapes(not just in the bra fitting community, outside of that as well) for being unrealistic and anti-gravity, but this is actually the shape my stupidly FoT/tall root combination gives me in a bra so I am stoked. I am so, so ecstatic to say there is no quadboobing at the top. I did remove the mesh lining to make the ...silhouette more "globe proper" instead of a mild /| shape at the top, as it's very firm with no stretch whatsoever. Also changed the wires because they were something like 0.3in too narrow.
Immediate projection— not enough, as per usual. This isn't a dealbreaker for me since wrinkling at the bottom can't be seen through clothes. Finding a bra with enough openess on top is hard as it is and I don't want to be banished to halfcup land.
I also know that the bands for this brand tend to skew tight. Based on the bratabase measurements, this model specifically runs true to size? I went with 70 and it measured 30in (1 inch from my tight,) I still find that comfortable but YMMV. Read more 124 more words
(This review was edited a few months after the original version.)
I am new to Gorsenia and still in the process of finding my "abtf". I am even set (when leaning 90°), somewhat center-full, and asymmetrical. I've yet to determine my root height, but feel sure that I'm narrow.
The "abtf" calculator consistently puts me between a 34F and 34FF (UK), though I've did that isn't quite right because of my asymmetrical shape. I'm a pretty true 34 band size.
I bought this bra via Other Eden on Amazon, and originally followed their advice to size down in the cup because Gorsenia is known to be so projected. The ...cup was okay, but the 34 band felt very, very tight. I tried the equivalent of a 36 band and E or F cup (again, following their size conversions) and while 36 was a bit better, it messed with the cup shape for me.
On a whim, I decided to try again, this time with a 34G (75G EU size), and had a MUCH better fit! The band felt fine when I went up in cup size, the gore tacked, I don't get as much back fat/rolls, and the cups, while not 100% perfect, are smooth enough without gaping or quadding after swoop and scoop. The stretch lace at the top really helps with my asymmetrical size, and unlike the tulle or mesh top of Gorsenia's Victoria model, lays almost perfectly against my skin.
I found the projection pretty decent, too, though personally, I could use a little more at the wire than this one offers. I have a 2-2.5" difference between my standing and leaning bust.
The wires were a good width and height for me I think, though the straps are slightly wide, which can irritate my tail off of spence.
All in all, this has been my best fit so far. It isn't my holy grail, but I liked it enough to buy a second one.
If you're having trouble with a tight band, don't be afraid to try a bigger cup. It might work better for you despite what the sellers say about Gorsenia's sizing. Read more 248 more words
From what I remember, the band was snug on this one but not so much that it needed an extender. The cups had too much space up top, the lace kinda flapped up there and didn’t lay flat. The wires were slightly too narrow (according to folks who helped with a fit check on ABTF reddit). If I remember correctly, the gore did not tack on this one.
About me: center full, close set, full on bottom with tall, sloping roots, narrow and projected.
Band is truer to size/less stretchy than other gorsenia's I've tried. It is itchy but I don't know why.
The cups are deep and narrow, but they are too splayed/separate at the bottom for me while requiring more upper center fullness. I think I need gores that are narrow from top to bottom, not V shaped like this one. I tried an extender in case the band was too tight and was distorting the cups, but it didn't help.
Fir someone who is center full and full on top, I think this would work well. The lace at the top/top center of the cups is stretchy and shouldn't cut in.
